Sheffer, Susannah, Ed.
Growing Without Schooling, n103-108 1995
These six periodical issues are designed to assist adults in home schooling children and adolescents. Issue 103 focuses on friendships between homeschoolers and school students, writing clubs, separating school and state, folk dancing groups, home schooling with foster and adopted children, and science activities. Issue 104 concentrates on how learning takes place with one interest leading to another, psychologists' opinions on homeschooling, grown homeschoolers' reflections on their schooling and their current activities, mothers' thoughts about their work, and the connection between teacher-pleasing and learning. Issue 105 explores developing self-discipline, adjusting to the freedom of self-directed learning, support groups, learning from siblings, and homeschoolers and high school athletics. Issue 106 addresses myths about "unschooling" (allowing for children's natural learning rather than giving them unasked-for teaching), off-campus colleges, learning languages from native speakers, compliance with state regulations, and families learning together. Issue 107 focuses on homeschooling with a nonparental adult, compliance issues, mathematical thinking, student decision-making, homeschool teacher qualifications, and mothers' enthusiasm. Issue 108 contains the 1996 Directory of Families and Organizations and focuses on family volunteering, doctors' prejudice, outdoor programs for homeschoolers, Christian unschooling, and using experiential learning to change self-perceptions. Each issue contains columns on current news and reports concerning home schooling, available resources, challenges and concerns of readers, book reviews, and "Watching Children Learn," readers' narratives regarding learning activities in different areas.
